Announcement of Suzaku SWG data release to the public

Suzaku has been observing many interesting objects in these 
almost two years after the launch. In the first half an year, 
Suzaku science working group(SWG) planned observations for 
the performance verification of Suzaku with important objects. 
As mentioned previously, those data will be released to the 
public one year after the delivery of the data processed using 
version 0.7 pipeline or later. Therefore, most of the Suzaku 
SWG data observed before April 9, 2006 will be open to public 
as of May 27, 2007. There are some exceptions of SWG data 
obtained later or those with special circumstances.

have organized, and plan to organize, symposia on  Suzaku results. 
The previous one was "Extreme Universe in Suzaku Era" in Kyoto 
on December 4-8, 2006.

The next one is entitled "The Suzaku X-ray Universe", 
planned  for December 10-12, 2007 in San Diego, California. 

We, Suzaku team, invite  you to explore the use of the Suzaku.
